CNN said it suspended presenter Chris Cuomo after new information broke out detailing his efforts to help his brother, former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, emerge from an ongoing sexual harassment scandal.

The suspension of the host of “Cuomo Prime Time” comes a day after the release of thousands of documents, text messages from the New York attorney general’s office, showing that Cuomo consulted various sources to help the governor deal with the scandal of sexual misconduct and the aftermath of the public relations debacle that led to his resignation.

This sparked an internal investigation by the media company.

“The documents, of which we were not aware prior to their public release, raise serious questions,” CNN said in a statement.

The top-rated presenter previously admitted on air to offering advice to his brother, but on Tuesday CNN said the new revelations “indicate a greater level of involvement in his brother’s efforts than we thought. previously”.

He continued, “As a result, we have suspended Chris indefinitely, pending further evaluation.”
